AgFunder GROW Impact Accelerator Launches Fifth Call

Singapore-based AgFunder GROW Impact Accelerator has launched the call for applications from global agrifoodtech founders to join the fifth cohort.

Areas of interest include AI & digital transformation, carbon market solutions, food waste mitigation, food science, precision agriculture & aquaculture technologies, and sustainable biomaterials.
